Title IX

The Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sex, age, disability, or any other basis prohibited by law in providing education or access to the benefits of education services, activities, programs, including vocational programs, CTE programs. The district provides equal access to the Scouts and other designated youth groups. The Director of Student Services or designee has been designated to coordinate compliance with these requirements.

Other federal laws that prohibit discrimination include Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972; and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended; the Age Discrimination Act of 1975 as amended; the Boy Scouts Act, and Title II. The district will take steps to assure that the lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission or participation in all educational and vocational programs.

The district has implemented procedures and policies that relate to Title IX Compliance. Section 901(a) of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 provides: No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance. The requirement not to discriminate extends to admission and employment. Information is available through Student Services, or by contacting the Title IX Coordinator, or the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights of the Department of Education, or both.
